I bought this car in 1988 in Hickory, NC. It was my first vehicle and I have owned it since then. I was the 3rd owner and apparently it was bought in NC. I drove it to South Carolina a few years ago and the rust started showing up recently. I have decided to let go of this car simply because it will continue to deteriorate here. I had it painted about 5 years ago and put brand new BF Goodrich tires on it then too. In 1989 the oil pump went out and I mistakenly kept driving it and blew the motorI replaced it with another Toyota FJ40 straight 6 with less miles. The odometer is broken, but I would guess that the body has 150,000 miles on it and the engine about 120,000. The other gauges work, but the odometer stopped working a few years ago. The car runs great. I recently had it tuned up and the Toyota mechanic, who sees a lot of FJ's said that this one had "really good bones" and that it was a solid vehicle. You will see in the pictures that there are some rust spots that could use attention. There is a missing antenna, missing mirror on passenger side, and a fender flare needs replacement. The original seats could use stitching, but I just covered them with covers. The brush guard that I bought is bent. That's about all the bad stuff. The car is a beauty and very cool. I am including the roof rack as well, but it needs new clamps to attach itI get get it to attach with a few of the clamps, but it would be more secure with new ones. You could easily drive it home with a couple of safety straps for good measure.
If you need more pictures, just ask. Buyer assumes all responsibility - no warranty offered. Buyer pays shipping and makes all arrangements for pickup. I have this car listed on other sites and reserve the right to take this one down early at any time.
Buy this baby and give it a little love it will love you back.
